About Stamply:

Well, let me start of by introducing myself. My name is Stamply, I am a Clouds Chomby. Unlike most pets, my reason for wanting to be in the pet spotlight is not to have a fancy trophy or to have fame, my reason is to try and save as many pets as possible. How can I possibly save any pets through the pet spotlight? Well, you are about to see.

The first thing I can remember is my owner's smiling face looking down at me as I hatched out of my egg. She picked me up and gave me a great big hug. I was so happy, I had a spacious neohome, I was fed and played with every day, and I was given lots of books to read. I think I was the happiest pet in all of Neopia. Unfortunately, all that was about to change.

One day I woke up in a gray fog. Thinking I was still dreaming, I tried to go back to sleep, only to realize I was suffocating. I was so scared. I quickly jumped out of my bed to see what was happening. It was then that I saw the smoke seeping from my bedroom door. In a panic, I tried to escape through the window, forgeting that I was on the second floor. Realizing that I couldn't exactly jump from the window, I abandoned that idea. Then I went from the window to the door and opened it up. Flames shot out at me and licked my hide. There was no other escape, so I forced my way through the door, feeling the sharp pain through my body. I managed to make my way down the stairs and found my owner, collapsed at the bottom of the stairs. I nuzzled her but she didn't move. I kept nuzzling her but she just laid there. The flames were beginning to crawl down the stairs so in a final attempt to save my owner I tried to get her on my back. She was so limp, I don't even think she was breathing. My efforts were in vain, because she slid off my back every time. I looked back up the stairs to see that the flames had spread rapidly and had almost reached me. I ran out of the house and went to find help. My brothers and sisters were outside watching the house burn. Suddenly, the house collapsed and I knew that all hope was gone.

The firefighters arrived a few minutes later, they were too late. I watched as they slowly put out the flames, and then I stared at the pile of ruble that once was my home. A peophin came slowly over to me and asked if anyone else was in the house. "My owner,"I said desperately, "My owner was in the house!" The peophin just looked at me and slowly shook his head. "I'm sorry," he said. The shock of it all hit me hard, and it felt as if someone reached into me and tore out my heart. All I could do was cry.

We didn't have insurance on the house, so we were bankrupt and had nothing left. The neopet pound came a few days later and took my brothers and sisters and I away. They didn't ask any questions, they just put us all in seperate cages with some food and water. It was so dark there, I cried every day, because I missed my owner and by brothers and sisters. People came and went, but they mostly adopted the painted pets, or the ones that were higher in level or strength. There were also many Chombys there, so if people wanted to adopt one, they had a large selection to choose from. One day a woman came and adopted my disco painted brother. I couldn't do anything but sit in my cage and watch her carry my brother away. I felt so helpless. A few weeks later though, something amazing and wonderful happened.

I was sleeping in my cage when I awoke suddenly to someone tapping on my cage. I looked up and saw a young girl looking down on me. She smiled and opened up my cage, then she took me out and picked me up. I hugged her and let my face unwind into a huge grin. My owner says that my smile literally took up my whole face. She took me home with her and showed me the room she had prepared for me. It was a soft blue, with clouds painted on the ceiling. It was so warm and cozy! It had a big bed in one corner with purple covers and blue pillows. There was a big bookcase, and a big toychest filled with all new toys. My paws felt so nice against the lavender carpet, compared to the cold grey steel of the pound floor.

A few months later my owner asked me if I would like a brother or sister. I immediately told her I would love one, so the next day we took a trip to the pound. There was a pretty rainbow Shoyru there, and I knew she has rare. My owner asked me if that was the pet I would like. I told her no, because I knew she would get a good home, but a not so rare pet might not. We continued down the rows of cages, until we came upon a red Chomby cowering in the corner of a cage. I nodded to my owner and she opened up cage. I went in and sat next to the wimpering Chomby. I told him that it was OK, that my owner was going to adopt him and I was going to be his big brother. He still looked scared so I told him that I too was adopted from the pound, and that he shouldn't be frightened anymore. He finally looked up at me and walked out of the cage with me. We went home and he has been my best friend ever since.

The next day my owner took us to the rainbow pool and painted me Clouds, and Jack disco. We are both really happy, and we love our owner. I will never ever forget my old owner though. Jack has yet to tell us why he was abandoned, but I think he will soon. I know how hard it is to talk about your old life, so thats why I'm not going to talk to him about it until he's ready.

Do you see now how I can help pets? I am trying to spread the message to adopt pets, and not just the painted or strong ones, but the frightened, cowering pets in the pound. If I can make just one person go out and adopt a pet, then I have accomplished my goal. So, go out, adopt a pet in need. You will never forget it, and neither will your pet.
